PURPOSE To investigate whether nitric oxide (NO) contributes to the regulation of retinal circulation during hypercapnia in cats. METHODS NG-nitro-L-arginine-methylester (L-NAME; n=8), a NOS inhibitor; NG-nitro-D-arginine-methylester (D-NAME; n=6), the inactive isomer; or phosphate-buffered saline (PBS; n=8) was injected intravitreously into the cat's eye. A selective neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) inhibitor, 7-nitroindazole (7-NI; n=6), was injected intraperitoneally. Hypercapnia was… CONTINUE READING
